The programs listed are available ONLY for homeowners in unincorporated Escambia County. City of Pensacola residents should contact the City of Pensacola Housing Department at 850-858-0350 to see about available repair programs.

Sewer Connection Assistance

Escambia County uses funding from the Community Development Block Grant, or CDBG, program to provide financial assistance for income eligible households for sewer connection and septic tank abatements. Assistance is provided in the form of a two year deferred payment loan; the loan will be forgiven at the end of two years provided that the owner has remained the primary resident of the property.

Homeowners may apply for assistance to connect to sewer upon receiving notification from the Florida Department of Health - Environmental Health Division that sanitary sewer service is available in their area. No funding is available for impact fees, so applicants must connect to sewer within the time allotted by ECUA in order to receive assistance under the program.

Community Development Block Grant Rehabilitation Program

Escambia County's Housing Rehabilitation Program uses federal funding from the Community Development Block Grant Program allocated through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The funds are used to assist very low and low income families with code related repairs to their homes. The home must be in need of repairs that, if left unattended, could pose a threat to the family's health and safety.

HOME Substantial Rehabilitation/Reconstruction Program

The Escambia County HOME Substantial Rehabilitation/ Reconstruction Program is made available through a formula allocation administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in accordance with provisions of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990. The program is designed to afford the opportunity to assist homeowners residing in severely substandard housing units which are beyond the scope of the CDBG Housing Rehabilitation Program. These units require substantive structural work extending beyond normal rehabilitation and requiring reconstruction of many components of the housing unit.
